Château Hostens-Picant Cuvée des Demoiselles 2011

GRAPE VARIETES:
55% Sauvignon, 40% Sémillon, 5% Muscadelle
Yield: 35hl/ha

TERROIR:
Limestone for the sauvignon and sémillon, flint for the muscadelle

VINIFICATION:
We oversee a six-hour process of skin-contact maceration before proceeding to a gentle pressing.
Fermentation occurs in oak barrels maintained at 22°C. Following this, the juices – still separated
by type – are stirred and left to age on their fine lees for a period of eight months. Final blending
does not occur until after the aging process.

TASTING NOTES:
The fresh quality of this vintage is immediately perceptible among hints of honeysuckle, ripe lemon
and white peach.
The mouth-feel is a fine balance of acidity and the sweetness obtained during the aging process. In
any case, a deliciously refreshing finish.
